The show only had 38 people in the audience and I have no idea why! It is amazing to watch!the ticket man said the winter months are slow for them which was to our benefit for sure. These acrobats are simply phenomenal. The training begins at age 6! I highly recommend seeing them ❤️

Beautiful theatre. Those performers are incredible. Awesome acrobats. A must see!! So glad we made the decision to check it out. It doesn't get a lot of publicity but one of the best shows by far.

This is a new show at the Yakov Theatre. It was pure entertainment from the beginning until the end of the show. There were at least 10-12 acts and each one was daring and amazing. Children loved it

My family went to see The Acrobats of China during our recent Branson family vacation and we were all thoroughly entertained. If you are looking to have your breath taken away, this show is a must on your to do list.

The Yakov theater is over-the-top ornate and grandiose but the performers were absolutely amazing! My only complaint was the one fellow who was an amazing master of control on stacked chairs was too high and you could not see him as he was above the curtains. I will bring any guests I ever have in town (since I am a... More

What a lot of talent is in this group. Well worth the money. Balancing acts higher than the stage curtains. A lot of the athletes can bend their backs in half. Very entertaining blend of music and stage work. Just sorry I haven't seen it on my previous trips here.

These people are all made of elastic. They were literally bending over backwards to entertain us. Ha Ha! I thought I knew a little something about yo-yo's, but I know NOTHING. The costumes, sets, music, and the athleticism of the performers left me on the edge of my seat. These performers are a real tribute to their native country!
